    • welds
    • plates
  • BIM improvements
  • Member Capacity Design analysis improvements
  • User interface improvements

The most important new features in detail

Implementation of CISC code

In addition to Eurocode and American code, we now support the Canadian code, as it has been requested by many of our users in North America. We implemented code checks for standard bolts, preloaded bolts, welds, and plates according to the CISC code.

As part of our policy, the CISC code will be standard in all versions of IDEA StatiCa.

BIM links with CAD programs
  • Link Tekla Structures – a new command for the CISC code import
  • Link with Autodesk Advance Steel – a new command for the CISC code import
BIM links with FEA programs

A new link has been implemented in Graitec’s Advance Design software so that the user can directly export a connection to IDEA StatiCa.

Member Capacity Design improvement

A new improvement based on user request: As the value of the bending moment is calculated and cannot be changed, we now create automatically two load cases with the same bending moment but with a different orientation.

Improvement of the user interface

For a more clear arrangement, the Design settings window is now always displayed in the Design and Check view.

Also for a more clear information about the performed analysis, the information about Buckling analysis is displayed every time.

New localization - French

A new localization of the IDEA StatiCa is implemented! The French language is a now available for all French speaking countries.
